Crazy Radical People

And now, the rest of the conversation with Michael Mercier, Director of Spiritual Care at Rhode Island Hospital and Hasbro Children’s Hospital as well as the pastor of Allendale Baptist Church in Providence.

Riliage –

With topics that never seem to go out of style, Jonathan and Michael are angry about religious extremists and Donald Trump. When thinking about crazy people, there doesn’t seem to be much of a difference.


Luke 21:25-28 – the end times are coming and they are going to be a lot of fun for everyone. We can’t wait!

Watcha’ Into

Michael is reading Falling Forward, by Richard Rohr, and The Courage to Be by Paul Tillich. Progressive liberal Christians from the previous century and the current century which is well balanced.


Jonathan is reading Homiletic: Moves and Structures by David Buttrick. It is a technical book that really only makes sense to preachers and people who like to criticize preachers.
